Still coolish and right now dealing with some strong storms. I wish it could have waited one more night so that fireworks would have been postponed til Fri night so I could watch them!! LOL. I have to be up at 3am tomorrow and Fri for work so no fireworks for me. :~(
No 90's here but VERY close, it's 86° now, they say 87° will be the high today, we'll see! It's supposed to be 92° on Sunday. The weather was good last nite for fireworks until about 2am I heard..lol I went out once to check to make sure the roof wasn't on fire, the booms were kinda close, the works were everywhere! At least the roofs of our cars won't be covered in fireworks paper this year, those neighbors are out of town. Yeah, the humidity is serious!
We actually have had sunshine for two days, a bit of it was liquid sunshine, but didn't stop me from working in the garden. High 88° today.
We were on vacation on west (Gulf) side of FL for two weeks, ocean water like bath water, then for the 4th went to the east (Atlantic) side and the water was very cool, always amazes me the difference in the water temperatures from one coast to the other here.
I just looked at the long ranger, (the 7 day forecast), no chance of rain anywhere in it. Of course, that could change, it often does..lol - http://www.kshb.com/subindex/weather/forecast/7_day_forecast
And I like rain, when you have 148 plants outside to water you like rain alot! It is creeping back up to 99° next Tues. AND Wed. for the highs they say. That temperature is just no good when you don't have ac in your car!
Power was out all evening starting late afternoon , nice evening though .. 66 degrees , 75% humidity ,,
Yesterday and today were bunches of fun if you enjoy listening to chain saws ..
Tornadoes all stayed to the north of here . still bad news wind ...
hot and humid enough up here yesterday. In fact bad enough that the dominator 3 and owners (and friends) from Oklahoma burnt rubber hurrying up here in hopes of catching an F4 to F5 tornado. Thankfully while our CAPE was in the danger zone we had a dry Cap above us and the storm cells weren't able to blow the cap off the bottle!
Very relieved since my city, Regina and other cities/towns in Eastern Saskatchewan were in the danger zone.
The hot and humid air is now headed elsewhere and we are now expecting much nicer/kinder rainfalls.
Well it rained all morning at the market.
Some big wind gusts at around 11 AM. Some people had tents blow over. Even ours with big weights on them tried to lift up. Tarp blew off one of our frames. Nothing broke though. People next to us had 3 tents fastened together. Wind tipped them over onto their trailer. Wreaked all 3.
High 80s for high and humid. All in all not too bad for this time of year. Could be 100 and humid. Ugh!! Bad thing is now we are drying up for the season so doesn't look like we will be getting much rain for awhile unless it manages to rain tonight.
Things are going a little nuts in South East Sask this afternoon. Up too baseball sized hail (east of Weyburn), strong winds and reports of tornadoes near Carlyle. The storms are ongoing and are moving very quickly (70km)toward the Manitoba border. There has been heavy localized flooding in many cities and towns throughout the SE.
The Craven Country Jamboree Festival was also hammered today with a bunch of rain but fortunately for organizers and fans (23,000 of them camping there) it was just rain.
Newest update from one or our local tornado storm chasers...I will be hauling some plants in shortly.
"orgeous sunday across most of the prairies today however a few storms expected off the foothills in Alberta and some sub-severe pop-up storms across parts of southern Sask and Manitoba. Overall a great day especially if you are out at the Craven Music Festival!
But...We should talk about Monday. Saskatchewan, in particular an area east of Lake Deifenbaker from hiway 16 south to the US border looks to be in for another round of dangerous storms. Might be time to snap up some last minute hail insurance!
I wont have to travel much to get to my target area tomorrow as Team Tornado Hunter will be postioned within the MooseJaw/Regina/Chamberlain triangle to start the day. Conditions tomorrow appear to be ripe for Supercell storms capable of heavy rains, large and copious hail and even tornadoes.
Areas in the SE part of Sask that just experienced the same thing yesterday are also under the gun again tomorrow. Please pay attention to watches and warnings throughout the day tomorrow...today however...enjoy the sun and sip your bevy's!"
Farm, house, etc is insured but my plants aren't so a hauling I go...
More nice weather here today. Just over 80º with a little breeze & sunshine.
Spent the afternoon watching the Twins overhaul the Yankees. Didn't see the end, but think it was Twins 10, Yankees 4.
New neighbor stopped in to introduce himself. His farmstead has a 3½ Acre field on it. We may rent it next year for more veggies.
I am glad to hear that someone besides me and lilypon has rain ..
One thermometer was reading 97 a while ago another 92 Forecast is saying 88 today and 86 now , sunny , hot , long day ..
But it is a nice summer day .
I don't care what all that say really ,it is 90 degrees and 100 in the sun ..
Humidity 52% feels higher
I always wondered what it would be like to eat dinner upside down...
Deliciously nice this am and not one single nasty warning in sight.
The storm pics that were put up on my FB feed were unreal. A lot of severe weather happened yesterday but not one person was hurt by it.
So far our farm has received 10 inches of rain since planting (thankfully in smaller downpours). Last year the final total was 18 inches (and not a drop fell on it in August or September...good for ripening and combining).

Going for our first 90 degree day of the year ,, I thought it happened weeks ago .. not a lot of difference from 86 to 90 with sun shining and the humidity , slapping you like a soaked washcloth ..
Wind at 6mph
Humidity 59 % feels much higher ..
88 DEGREES -- AS SAID BEFORE ... it is hot ...
88 degrees F here, full sun , I am down for an hour or two , heading for the AC
Humidity reading wrong so we will say it is lots . as in ring it out ..& out again.. wow !!!
Wind is calm ,, it is BROILING!!!
We are suppost to get rain today.So i am going to mow,before it does.Right now it is getting hot already.I hope the rain can wait until late this evening.I mowed my dads yard and half of mine.I had to come in,because the sun is blazing again.
Oh its cool at your house, Bernie. Right now the temp is 95 and yesterday it reached 97.
Windy, hot and DRY.
We need rain desperately as the corn is rolling and I feel like we have hoses attached to our hands. We have drip irrigation too but not for every thing.
Weather say 90 degrees mostly cloudy , garden thermometer in the shade says 97 degrees , it is still summertime ,,
IDEA FOR TODAY : Lets all go swimming in the shade of the willow pond ..
(I wish I had one of those)
Cloudy, 75 right now, maybe up to 89, but never makes it that high because it rains, pouring down and drops back into the mid 70's. The only thing lovin this weather is the skeeters.
That dang tropical thing just seems to be hanging around here.
We were in the low 90s at the very least today with high humidity and NO wind til this afternoon when we finally got a really nice downpour at work and nothing all here at home. But it did cool off some.
From a North Dakota met attached to my FB I wonder if Bernie will have some exciting weather today?
"For folks in North Dakota...southern Manitoba...and northwestern Minnesota...severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon. So be weather alert later today. First in the Williston-Minot and Estevan Sask area by mid afternoon then spreading into Devils Lake...northeastern North Dakota and southern Manitoba very late afternoon or evening. Severe threat then shifts into northwestern Minnesota after dark."
Gone on mini vacation Sunday & Monday. Was in central MN Sunday for family reunion. Weather couldn't have been better.
Today, light rain for couple minutes Monday morning in Brainerd.
Partial sun on way home. Went through Twin Cities & picked up some supplies at the garden supply place.
Now, sunny & 83º.
Slept like a log last night. Opened up the windows. This morning, 56º.
Going to enjoy the day with a high of 80º.
We have beautiful vacation lakes in Minnesota for anyone wanting to get away for a spell.
Kelli,thats great that you have some air.They are better then nothing.
It is nice outside at the moment.Their is a breeze for now.Until maybe about 3 then ever thing will sky rocket with hot and humidity.Some i will get my 2 mile walk out of the way before then.I wish the weather could stay 75 all year around.In the summer the sun is blasting hot blazes or the winter is blasting with frost..
I just got back from walking and i would said the heat is on.I am one of those people that is easy to tan,and when i go walking i am dripping in sweat when i get back.Their is still a breeze,but its only cool in the shade.Other then that when you are in the open sun its a heat wave.
Mid 80s with some humidity but not too bad once the breeze kicked up.
Was at Powell Gardens most of the day today with my neice and nephew. Gotta keep them busy so they don't tear down the house!! lol. They had a ncie breeze there so that helped keep up from sweating too much.
Nephew is 6 and neice 8 going on 9 in a month or so. They were running in and out of the house this afternoon so I kicked them outside for awhiles and told them not to come back inside. lol. They stayed out to avoid even worse consequences. lol
Lol!!!Pepper,that is just too funny!!! I wait here until it cools off to let my son go out.If he goes out when its hot,he is back inside before you know it.Mostly his head get soaking wet with sweat,so i mainly make him wait until it cool down some.
Worked in tomato house this morning. No sweat!
Tons of ripe tomatoes, should make
for a fun Saturday at market.
We need this break in hot weather.
Tomatoes pollinate better when cooler.
We will be picking & washing things all day.
Thank goodness we are now warming up!!! :D
Some of the nicest crops ever are growing in the prairies (well at least those that didn't get flooded or hailed out). Next cold front will be coming from the East in about 2 weeks according to the long range models (even deep South Texas, at least Houston area, should benefit from that one).
Am praying the above is right. The West doesn't need any more cold fronts, rain or hail for a long while.

Sorry Kelli...I forgot BC needs rain desperately too.
Hard to tell which of these worked out when I'm just looking at numbers. However here is a few pics of our farm. Our legendary moose finally showed herself to us. She became a legend in her own right for #1chosing the bald prairie to make her home and most importantly for #2 having triplets twice now (wish I could have captured them on camera but i figured we were so lucky just to get her). She chose our farm since no one lives there anymore and she has a creek and a good shelter belt she can hide in.
We went out to the farm to capture pics of the crops. My husband said he was sure he saw a moose when we went up to the old homestead. We got out of the Rav and walked down to the creek. We were trying to be ever so quiet and sneaky so we could look down its small valley in hopes of sighting her. My husband looked up and spotted her spying on us. She watched us, looking thoroughly ticked off, for the longest time. Then she turned and ran down the the road that crosses the creek (now she was on our side :S ). She continued running behind us and behind the old barn and then we sighted her running along the shelter belt. We figured she had probably hidden her young there (i phoned a neighbouring farmer and it turns out she had triplets again). No wonder she looked unhappy with us.
Today as the pics show was cool and overcast and then the sun came out and it turned into a mid 70's day.
Glad I captured it then Bernie. :o) Until you said that I forgot the differences in our crops here vs. across the border. I hope to head out there again so as to catch it in full bloom as well as the canola crop (hopefully under clear blue skies next time).
Thank you for the compliments re our moose Southgal and Cville-Gardener.
My husband had the heavier Nikon and he was able to capture more pics when she started running to our side of the creek (glad we had brought both since it is a much faster camera). She is a BIG healthy girl and man o man can they ever move FAST! When she started crossing over to our side of the creek my husband was worried that she was up to no good re us (especially if she had young nearby). However we were lucky since our puny movements over uneven terrain only got us halfway back to our car before she had covered at least 20 times the same distance (if not more).
Kelli, Southgal and Juhur7 it was back when I was a child that I mainly saw moose and that was up in the mountains or up North. They weren't to be found anywhere on the plains. Recently however we've had sightings of them between here and Saskatoon and even more recently we've had a few come into town (but they are mainly travelling through heading either to the Cypress Hills (provincial park) or other wooded areas in this province or Manitoba (or some South of the international border). She is the only one that I am aware of that has chosen to make her home on the prairie...I'm sure there are a few others but I've not heard about them. Come hunting season she heads to the hills below our farm (must be some protected land there as most big game animals here seem to know where it is safe and they high tail it to those places just before the guns come out). It is also illegal to hunt moose in Southern Sask but I don't think she knows that as she is always gone (sayeth our neighboring farmers).
Juhur like you I find the countryside (come crop flowering season) very relaxing :) and I can spend many an hour out there exploring and soaking in the quietness and view. I truly can't imagine living where there are hoards of people.
Lilypon,she is a very smart moose.Like i said it sounds like she feels very safe their.
My dad has alot of land.Their are deers back their.Just last week their was a Doe deer with her two babies.They come and lay in the field when the grass is tall.Or you will see them at the pond,sometimes one of the babies or the mother.Its very neat to watch them.
